More About Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston in 1809, but was orphaned in 1811 and went to live with a foster family in Virginia. The relationship was conflicted, and the Allans withdrew their financial support after Poe had completed only one semester at the University of Virginia. He enlisted in the Army, then enrolled briefly in West Point, meanwhile publishing three volumes of poetry: Tamerlane (1827), Al Aaraaf (1829), and Poems (1831). From 1831 to 1835, he lived in Baltimore with his aunt, where despite his increasing literary success, he began a lifelong struggle with poverty and addiction to alcohol. In May 1836, he married his first cousin, Virginia Clemm, a child of thirteen. In April 1844, he moved his family to New York, and in January of the following year, his literary fortunes turned when his poem "The Raven" appeared in the New York Evening News. Overnight, he became the most talked-about man of letters in America. Early in 1847 his wife died of tuberculosis and he sank further into alcoholism. On October 3, 1849 he was found wandering the streets of Baltimore, delirious, and died four days later from an unknown cause.
Edgar Allan Poe lived in Boston. Edgar Allan Poe was born in 1809 and died in 1849.

A good, somewhat scary story Apr 30, 2007
When the unnamed narrator of this story ships out of Batavia, he little dreams of the horrifying cruise that he is embarking on. There is a giant black galleon cruising the ocean, and where that ship is voyaging, the narrator is about to find out...whether he wants to or not.
This story was one of Edgar Allan Poe's (1809-49) first tales. It was submitted for a contest in 1833, won, and was published in the newspaper, the Baltimore Saturday Visitor. This story was read by millionaire John P. Kennedy, who subsequently helped Mr. Poe in his career. The rest, as they say, is history.
Overall, I found this a good, somewhat scary story that shows the talent of E. A. Poe off to good effect. I liked this story, and highly recommend it.
